Ge'minus, Tu'llius

a poet of the Greek Anthology. There are ten epigrams in the Anthology under the name of Geminus (Brunck, Anal. vol. ii. p. 279; Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. ii. p. 254), of which the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and tenth are inscribed, in the Vatican MS. simply Γεμίνου, and the eighth Γαιμίνου: the first is inscribed, in the Planudean Anthology, Τυλλίου Γεμίνου, and the seventh has the same heading in the Vatican MS: the 9th is inscribed, in the Planudean, Τυλλίου Γεμίνου, and, in the Vatican, Τυλλίου Σαβήνου (i. e. Sabini). It is doubtful whether the Tullius, whose epigrams were included in the collection of Philip, was Tullius Geminus or Tullius Laurea. Most of the epigrams of Geminus are descriptions of works of art. They are written in a very affected manner. (Jacobs, Anth. Graec. vol. xiii. p. 897; Fabric. Bibl. Graec. vol. iv. p. 498.)
